ARCTIC COOLING Alpine M1 Passive Silent AMD AM1 CPU Cooler, High passive cooling performance
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs One of the best for AM1 processors 10/14/2016

This review is from: ARCTIC COOLING Alpine M1 Passive Silent AMD AM1 CPU Cooler, High passive cooling performance

Pros: I just got this passive cooler for my Athlon 5350 and it works like a beauty. Very easy to install and has some thermal paste.

Since it is fully passive the fan is super silent so no worries there. I recommend this one as the best cooler for your AM1 processor.

Cons: It is huge and not low profile but then again you would go with the other option for Arctic Cooler's regular AM1 fan. This passive fan may not work in low profile cases like the Fractal Design Node 202.

Other Thoughts: A must buy if you are using the AM1 socket!

Rosewill R379-M - Black & Silver, 0.8mm SGCC Steel Slim Micro ATX Computer Case with ATX12V Flex 300W Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very easy to build in. I threw in my motherboard, graphics card, and SSD in 20 minutes and I really like the lift-able cage for the hard drives. Solid design and the build is very good. No issues with my power supply yet either ways.

Cons: Maybe sharp edges? I don't know but there could be some close calls?
Pretty dense for a case but at least it's not flimsy.

Other Thoughts: A must have if you want to have a solid portable gaming case but want to use a micro-ATX board. And the cooling is fairly good. I don't recommend high profile CPU coolers due to the lack of width here.

SilverStone PS08B Black High-strength plastic and meshed front panel MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Not as bad as people say this one is. 04/13/2013

This review is from: SilverStone PS08B Black High-strength plastic and meshed front panel MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Very compact and lightweight; ideal for a very small media server. It fits extremely easily under my desk.

I got this case to fit all of my leftover PC components using an old Sapphire Radeon 4870 and an Athlon II 235e processor with a Biostar DDR2 motherboard. And it works to play SWTOR and Battlefield 3 very well.

Cons: Cable management is very hard in this case. Also long graphics card such as my Radeon 4870 will probably hit the back end of the 3.5" hard drive. However most people would not use more than 2 hard drives in this very compact build. Also this case is very low end Silverstone so don't expect Temjin style.
